Naomichi Marufuji vs. Takashi Sugiura (NOAH, 11/27/2011)

Very good return match for Marufuji. He's still flashy, but not as flashy as he used to be. This time his style meshed well with Sugi's stiff and brutal strikes and forearms. Every time when Marufuji tries to act like a cat, Boss Sugi just cuts him off with elbow, knee or spear, lol. I liked that.

reminded me a lot of early 1-2-3 Kid stuff. He had like 3 small moves and tried a bunch of upset roll through and cradle stuff. I'm not high on H. Takahashi though.

Half way through that match I found myself randomly rooting for him too. Funny how that happened.

NOAH - The Navigation Saturday 2011 In Niigata

Taiji Ishimori vs Mikey Nicholls
Nicholls was playing the evil foreigner but the crowd wasn't even reacting to him. He spends the whole match working down one of Ishimori's limbs and then Ishimori just no sells that shit and does a bunch of aerial moves. Urgh.
**

Yutaka Yoshie & Masashi Aoyagi vs Masao Inoue & Kentaro Shiga
A light-hearted match that dragged.
*

Shane Haste vs Takuma Sano
It's the young gaijin versus the grumpy veteran. A surprisingly good match. Haste made me care about the match and he's proved to me that he's not some Davey Richards clone like I initially thought.
***

Yoshinari Ogawa vs Genba Hirayanagi
Ratboy's got a new fan. I loved his sly antics such as holding down Hirayanagi's head by the ring bell, then ringing it and then crotching him on the ring post.That match itself may not be brilliant but Ogawa performance in it kept me entertained.
**½

KENTA, Yoshihiro Takayama & Yoshinobu Kanemaru vs Takashi Sugiura, Mohammed Yone & Ricky Marvin
A fun tag match that gave No Mercy the momentum that they need. Everyone in the match got time in the ring to showcase their talents. We even got to see Marvin and Takayama square off and seeing Marvin trying to take that big redwood was pretty funny.
***

GHC Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championship
Kotaro Suzuki & Atsushi Aoki (c) vs Kenou & Kenbai
This was a total spotfest. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I would of rated it much higher if they didn't spend 10 minutes trying to give the match some foundation, which totally failed. It would be nearly touching the four star territory if this was all spots and no pointless build-up.
***¼

Kenta Kobashi, Jun Akiyama & Akitoshi Saito vs Go Shiozaki, Takeshi Morishima & Shuhei Taniguchi
If you like stiff strikes, this match is for you. Kobashi nearly gets beheaded by one of Shiozaki's superkicks. Everyone got involved and this had an awesome finishing stretch.
***¾

Overall:
Well, it took me nearly two weeks to sit through this show, so that should give you some idea of what I thought about it. While a lot of the matches weren't terrible the overall show did drag. I'd say skip this one.

re: Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)

Tsuruta vs Misawa 9/1/90: ****1/2. Great atmosphere here and some really physical action. The crowd rivals that in Jumbo/Tenryu in 89 and the commentator in the match was incredible. The pace they set is phenomenal because they keep it up the entire match. Couple botches at the end of the match drag it down from being perfect but throw those in the beginning or middle and I'd call it 5. The outcome was surprising to me as well as I thought it went the other way.

A left knee injury became the topic of KENTA interview with proresu shukan last week, but now Tokyo sports says it's "long-time absence". Doctors decide to do an operation depending on the result of today's detailed examination. KENTA will miss about 6 months, he was injured at 8th of November in match with Sasaki and got worse in match with Shiozaki.
Tough break for not only KENTA but NOAH as well if he is gone for a long time.

The other 1990 Misawa/Jumbo match was the one with the surprise upset. At that point Jumbo was still the man but that was the fued that passed the torch to Misawa. Think that match is a ***** match by the way. Its not the smoothest match ever but the storytelling itself was amazing and two of the best performances i've ever seen.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure June 8th is where Misawa really becomes All Japan's new top-dog. I think the Sept 1st match is better and probably one of the ten best matches I've ever seen, but the other is about a hair away from it.

Yeah that sucks. He was just starting to get great again imo. Also I never would have known he was injured at all watching the Shiozaki match, he didn't show anything.

Yeah. Same. He seemed in pretty great shape in his match with Go. I hope he doesn't get taken off the NOAH UK shows next year. He was one of the guys I really wanted to see live.
